Running Head: THE SENSE OF JUSTICE ACTS AS THE BRIDGE BETWEEN DEADLY SINS AND
THEOLOGICAL VIRTUES
Introduction
The second part of the Summa contributed by St. Thomas examines about three different
concepts of the philosophy that are pertinent for any individual seeking for a vitreous life
where he can enjoy his spiritual existence and fulfill all the worldly duties at the same time.

warns him about the acts that can bring a hell in his life. The four cardinal virtues are the area
that is in the control of a human being. The four cardinal virtues are prudence, temperance,
courage, and justice. In the current essay, we are examining a hypothesis that says "the
sense of justice sets the bridge between theological virtues and deadly sins[ CITATION Aqu13 \l
16393 ].”

virtues
The primary argument connected to the definition described in Summa raise a question that
whether justice should be based on emotions or it should be based on reasons. In order to
exemplify the relevance of the teachings of Summa, an individual is bound to examine them
in the contemporary society as well[ CITATION Tho131 \l 16393 ].
In contemporary society the definitions of the justice revolve around the reasoning inflicted
by the state or the ruling authority of the region or the land. If an individual is following the
“law of the land” then he is bound to follow the “justice of the land.” Hence the sense of
justice becomes the trigger and the controller of the Prudence, Temperance, and Courage.
The set of the laws dealing with the depiction of courage and temperance are important
